Well, thought Edith Flood, her husband certainly hadn't wasted much lime after asking her to agree lo a divorce. "I -thought," Oil Sumnieirflcld finished limply, "that j-ou ought to know." Ede asked very calmly: "What made you think I didn't know, His eyes traveled away from her. "I'd rather not answer that I know Peter Flood. I don't want to say any more." "You needn't," Ede said. 1 think 1 understand." "And now," he looked downcast T suppose you'll class me with the other scandal-mongers?" • •. Ede 'l, hand cover «d his' across Jhe table. "No, Gil. You were absolutely right about two things I didn t and I should know it And I'M tell you jomelhing Peter has asked me for a divorce " ... G 'j' 5 head J erkcd "P quickly And you?" Ede shrugged. "I'll glve lt to him, of course. I've already written him. He has carte blanche to do as he likes. Hut the Mexico part is interesting." Gil said, his voice low, "I cant Copjrri,),! I9SO I, NEA S.r,K., 1.C an Idee Kxec and he's carrying It out. Do you remember, Gil 1 lolti you thai Pelcr felt sold down the river because he didn't get some- tiling he wanted?

"You're charitable. In your shoes. I'd want lo kill him." "Perhaps I wouldn't consider It worlh-while." ', Oil toyed so long with the handle of a spoon that the pause grew embarrassing. Finally, "Ede, I'm going to ask you something. And you can answer it or smack my face, just as you see fit." "I've never smacked your face much, have I, Gil?" "Okay." His fibers twisted around the spoon handle. "Are you still in love with Peler Flood, She gave him a long look and her green eyes were veiled, hooded. "What do you think, Gil?" she "I think," Gil said quietly, "(hat „ «iidi i want to was a quarter to t in the morning. Ede, arriving at the agency early >nd happening to pass Chuck Stoneham's office be held a most unorthodox sight' On Chuck's desk reposed a bot- e three-quarters empty. Chuck "If-".'•!" hii iwivf] chalr ith hi.v feet on the desk. His !,!!. aS °" his chesl and nis h "»d nodded. Perched like a brown monkey on the window sill was Pat Veraon. There was a drink in his hand. Aghast, Ede stared at the dissolute scene. They moved suddenly like puppet! on a string. Chuck shot up In his chair, blinking out trf red- rimmed eyes. Pat slid off the window sill, grinned at her, looked sheepishly nt th« glass h« held, then set it on the floor. "Now, look," Ede begun angriJy. "What you do afler hours is your own business. But " She slopped suddenly. She was perceiving that they were not in the Icasl drunk. Only tired, to the point of exhaustion. Then her eyem fell on the layoiils ranged all «long the baseboard of the wall at one side of the room. There was a piece of copy, typed on yellow scratch paper, clipped to each. ^ AT VERNON indicated the misty-eyed Stoneham whose hend had begun to droop again. "The maestro, here, got a brainwave on Morn-Glo yesterday afternoon. So we decided to stick around last night and work It out. And we got going and couldn't stop. I'm sorry about the liquor. Miss Frey. Tha< was my Idea. Chuck chewed the cork a little and I drank the rest, m take the rap for that," "Forget it," said Ede. She looked at them wonderingly. "Do you mean to say you actually worked all nighl?" "That's right." Stoneham recovered long enough to put the bottle away in his desk. "But It was worth it. I think we've got something, Miss Frey." Ede was bending over looking at the layouts. All at once she straightened up. "Why, these ar« wonderful," sh» said. "Simply swell " "Sure." Pat Vernon winked, quirking the whole tide of hit face. "The layouts are okay I wouldn't know about the copy » Nuts tu you," said Sloneham, with a tired smile. "1 don't have to read the copy- Ede said. "The'headlin« get tb. whole thing over, and the idea behind it ii perfect. You've both done a grand job." "I hope Norfhcott thinks so too » • nuck murmured. "We'll try and make him think just that," Ede said. "Now get out at here, both of you. You need sleep. We'll talk these over with Jeffrey and Mr. Reagan tomorrow." <T» He Continued) For careful attention to the filling of your prescriptions, be sure to come to Barney's Drug.
